# Chapter 18: Fluids

## The Big Idea

In studying fluids we apply the concepts of force, momentum, and energy — which we have learned previously — to new phenomena. Since fluids are made from a large number of individual molecules, we have to look at their behavior as an ensemble and not individually. For this reason, we use the concept of conservation of *energy density* in place of conservation of energy. Energy density is energy divided by volume.

Description

We study fluids and apply the concepts of force, momentum, and energy. The concept of conservation of energy density in place of conservation of energy is presented as well as Archimedes’ Principle, Pascal’s Principle, Bernoulli’s Principle.
